Culture Calendar London – December

DSC_4989

THAT TIME OF THE YEAR. It’s officially Christmas time everyone! And just because the weather is cooling down doesn’t mean your social life can’t heat up. Like every month, I have selected interesting gigs, exhibitions and events to give you some inspiration on what to do in London throughout December. This month is pretty exhibition heavy, because opera and ballet are super popular during pre-Christmas season and tickets are unfortunately already sold out for most shows.

Out and About in Dresden

CHRISTMAS RECAP. I still have a few photos to show from Christmas, which we spent in my hometown Dresden. I usually make sure to visit at least two Christmas markets; the rather traditional (and commercial) ‘Striezelmarkt’, which dates back to year 1434 and is therefore one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany, and the medieval market. The Striezelmarkt usually has two Finnish stands offering glögi and other Finnish delicacies, to which I turn in case of a very bad ‘I miss Finland’ situation. But actually, I prefer the medieval market because of its cosy atmosphere and the lack of pushy tourists.
